Huh, interesting. This seems to get me nice singles but the S U f' in the middle is really tricky. Is the S move supposed to be done with left index, or is the U f' supposed to be done in one motion with the left index (pushing back on FLU then down on UL)?

Also, you can modify this to get an Na perm (of questionable use?):
R' f R U' R' f' R U F U R U' R' S U f'
Personally I prefer doing right thumb to start and push the S with left index and keep it on top during right U then bring the left index back down to do the f’. You can use the middle fingers to do a lot of moves in the alg as well depending on how you execute certain moves.
Edit: also what speed are you getting on the alg? I’m getting around 1.2 at the moment.

I had around 2.3 average, 1.8 single earlier, with right index S move, left index U, reset left index, left index f'.

Your execution is what I meant by the left-index S move, and it seems to flow okay, but my left-index S moves are really inconsistent. Not really in the mood to drill algs now but I'll try timing with this execution later.

edit: Got around 2.0-2.1 averages with both executions. No clear winner yet. Also, I'll still have to use the RUF alg for big cubes, anyway.

r F2 r' F2 U2 r2 U2 r' U2 F2 r2 U2 F2 r U2 F2 r(17 STM)
inefficient but cool new alg for the lucas parity case
(I ran the classic setup on CE for the first time and got this)

EDIT: 2L' U 2L U' 2R U2 2L' U 2R' U2 2R U' 2L U2 2R' (15 STM) here's what I think is a double parity which might be useful? (I might be wrong tho)(also, I used a different setup)

EDIT 2: I found this 15 mover too:
r U2 l' U2 l U' r' U r U l' U r' U2 l

It's slice move variant is apparently a 4 cycle of dedges that's probably useful for cage:
2R U2 2L' U2 2L U' 2R' U 2R U 2L' U 2R' U2 2L

EDIT 3:
Another 15 mover: r' U l' U2 r U2 l U2 r' U l' U l U' r

good alg or fingetricks for this COLL case?
I'm using
R' U R U2 R' L' U R U' L​
But I can't do it fast
For that case (U2) r U' r U2 R' F R U2 r2 F or its inverse, or (U)R U R2 F R F' R U' R' F' U F or it's inverse is better.
You could also use the F/B mirror of your alg[(U2) R U' R' U2 L R U' R' U L'

I'm not sure what exactly you're seeing but all of these algs affect like six wing pieces plus some centre pieces, and they're all even parity (two 3-cycles, or 2-cycle and 4-cycle (up to AUF)).

R' U R U2 R' L' U R U' L
I think my fastest algs for this COLL were (both y2 angle from your picture):
R U' L U L' R' U2 L U L' executed as (thumb on bottom) R U' r B r' R' ((regrip to home grip) U2') r B r'
r U' r U2 R' F R U2 r2 F (a few ways to execute this; you could start thumb on bottom and use your index finger for the F move in the middle, or you could start in home grip and use your ring finger for the F move in the middle)

The U' at the beginning is unnecessary, unless you have a diagram that shows that algorithm from a different angle. anyway, this is actually really good but it isn't anything new. I already use this as an ELL algorithm

well I'm bored and don't know what to do As there are many ortega algs and I wanted to know which one was the best, i ran it through an algometer.
Note: These are not the confirmed best algs as people's turn styles are different

OLL

Sune: R U R' U R U2 R'
Anti Sune: L' U' L U' L' U2 L
Pi: R' F R2 U' R2' F R
P/U: F U R U' R' F'
L: F R' F' R U R U' R'
T: R U R' U' R' F R F'
H: R2 U2 R' U2 R2

PBL

Adj/Solved: R' F R F' R U2 R' U R U2 R'
Opp/Solved: R U' R' U' F2 U' R U R' D R2
Opp/Opp:R2 F2 R2/R2 B2 R2/x R2 U2 R2
Adj/Adj: R2 U' R2 U2 F2 U' R2
Opp/Adj: R' F U' R2 U F' R
